Unfortunately for fans of UNC Asheville, the Big South, and college basketball in general Kenny George will miss the season and most likely his career due to a merca staph infection. The infection has caused doctors to reportedly remove portions of his right foot. It is a tough blow to the Bulldogs but an even tougher one to the young man who no doubt has faced challenges as enourmous as his size. We wish him a healthy recovery.
